We're getting a fibre upgrade at our home so was looking into the way our disc network has been set-up to see if it is running efficiently to try and maximise the speed...
The discs are currently cat5e wired like this throughout the house due to poor signal when connecting them together via wifi...
but the system is showing the 'office' disc to be the master, (Image below), when I intended the 'garage' disc to be master due to it being next to the modem/router...
Does this really matter, will it affect performance that the master disc is furthest from the modem? or should the extra discs actually be wired directly to the master disc?
there is little documentation showing how these discs can be physically wired together...
Go to Solution.
When they are wired up with an ethernet backhaul it doesn't make any difference which is the master.
The master is purely the designated disc for making decisions about steering devices, initiating reboots and firmware upgrades etc. It doesn't have bearing on the performance or topology of the system.
Hopefully this helps answer your question.
